Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut tomato into 1/2-inch pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges. Add 1/4 tsp lime zest, 1 tsp lime juice (dbl both for 4 ppl) and sour cream to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Add Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer beef to a large bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm.
Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then peppers, onions and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until peppers are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Remove the pan from heat, then transfer pepper mixture to a medium bowl.
Fluff rice with a fork, then season with salt. Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and rice starts to brown, 1-2 min. Add green onions and pepper mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until warmed through, 1-2 min.
Divide fajita rice mixture between bowls. Top with beef and tomatoes. Sprinkle cheese over top. Dollop with lime crema. Squeeze a lime wedge over top, if desired.
